Katie Couric speaks out for paid sick days

Katie Couric took a stand for paid sick days on the CBS nightly news on Friday. Citing a recent report from Restaurant Opportunities Centers United, Couric noted that 2/3 of restaurant workers have prepared or served food while ill. Her comments were part of the “Katie Couric’s Notebook” segment of the show. Business owners and policy makers should take a page from Couric’s notebook and ensure paid sick days are accessible to all workers.
